Old Trafford draws are ‘defeats’

Ander Herrera

Herrera: We controlled the game for 90 minutes. Not to score a goal was unbelievable.

Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera says their last two Premier League draws at Old Trafford “felt like defeats”.

José Mourinho’s manne bossed games against Stoke and Burnley and could not find a way to breakdown their opponents.

United drew 0-0 with promoted Burnley on Saturday despite enjoying 72 percent of possession and racking up 37 shots on goal.

They also controlled their game against Stoke earlier this month but failed to take full points after a 1-1 draw.

Sandwiched between the two home draws were a 0-0 draw at Liverpool and a 4-0 defeat at Chelsea.

Herrera, who was sent off for after a second yellow card against for a clumsy challenge, said Burnley should have been on the received end of a heavy defeat given the number of chances United created.

The Spaniard says: “We controlled the game for 90 minutes. Not to score a goal was unbelievable.

“We have the luck against us right now but we have to keep playing like we did here and against Stoke and hopefully one day we can get a fair result – 5-0 or 6-0.

“The first yellow card I bent my knees, I didn’t want to kick the opponent.”The second, I slid in. But I don’t want to complain because I don’t want to be banned for more games.

“The only thing I can say is that I didn’t want to make those fouls. I am not a violent player. I slipped.”
